4. Flaming Skull Wild.
This Wild symbol is special.
It replaces any symbols other than Scatter symbols, has no intrinsic value, and activates Skulls UP spins!
5. Repeated spins with the expansion of the reels.
When Flaming Skull Wild is released, repeated spins are triggered, during which the reels increase to the size of 3-6-6-6-3 (24 cells), but the additional cells are initially closed.
Each time a Wild or Flaming Skull Wild symbol appears, one new cell in the additional reel area opens.
Repeated spins continue as long as the Flaming Skull Wild symbols remain on the reels
